The storyline
This was supposed to be a preview of the NFC Championship Game, then both teams underachieved in the first half of the season. It's too late for the Cowboys, but a few wins like this could keep them relevant.

Why you should watch
The last time the Cowboys were on national television, they thoroughly embarrassed themselves at home against the Giants. Anything that listless again, and Jerry Jones might spring from his luxury box before halftime.
